The Community Foundation has created the COVID-19 Nonprofit Support Fund to assist nonprofits in Ingham, Eaton and Clinton counties that are struggling financially due to the pandemic. 


  • Currently, our priority is to support 501(c)(3) nonprofits whose mission is to provide direct human services in any of the following areas: food, shelter, medical and mental health care, and homeless support.
  • Funding priorities may shift over time to meet the region’s changing needs. When that happens, other organizations considered for support will be nonprofits with deep roots in the community and a strong track record of community support.
  • Grants and loans may be made from this fund to support staffing costs, technology, and other infrastructure needs that allow nonprofits to provide services.
  • To be responsive to urgent needs in the community, grants and loans will be made in waves, potentially monthly.

Grant applications are available by invitation only from the Community Foundation. To discuss your eligibility for this fund, contact Cindy Hales, Director of Community Investment at or Laurie Baumer, Executive Vice President at
